When I attended university, my emphasis was on achieving, performing, and doing things just right. After facing failures of various kinds, I discovered my education also included learning resilience and how to begin again. My best teachers - people I trusted, respected, and studied with - encouraged me through rocky times and helped me to imagine new ways forward. Grades were important, but my spirit and emotions came to be nurtured as well.
I view my job as chaplain as a calling to care for students as whole people and to encourage them to expand their notions of success to include wider and richer purposes. Learning beyond academic studies involves learning about how to face challenges, how to make a life, and how to make a difference in the world.
Blaise Pascal once wrote: “In difficult times, carry something beautiful in your heart.”
My daily spiritual work - in the best and worst of times -- is to carry the beauty and treasure of the gospel in my life, to receive each day as a gift of grace from God, and to watch for the ways God is present and working in me and those around me.
